S. Princess Victoria  in Burrard inlet narrows at noon on  Saturday last. The Chehalis was  passing out through the narrows at  ��� an S knot speed, closely followed by  the C. P. R. liner at a 15 knot  speed. The Chehalis was suddenly  struck by the rapidly running incoming tide and thrown across the  channel. Before the Victoria could  be stopped she struck the Chehalis,  cutting her in two and drowning  nine of the party of fifteen on hoard.  The following is a list of the drowned: Dr. H.

Crawford, deck-hand, Vancouver;  and two Japanese firemen and one  Chinese cook.  Tlie Princess Victoria immediately slopped, threw over a number of  life preservers and lowered five  boats, which picked up six survivors as follows: Capt. House, J. O.  Benwell, commission merchant of  Vancouver; C. A. Dean, engineer;  P. G. Shallcross; R. H. Bryce and  II. N. Rich.  Vancouver, B.C.; July 24.���Capt.

Pic  was subsequentlyreleased on bail.  Ottawa, July 26.���Upon the application of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company the Federal Government will appoint a commission  to investigate the linking of the tug  Chehalis in the Vancouver narrows  on Saturday last by the C.

Winnipeg, J.uly 25.���-The royal  insurance_.commission opened its  investigation today, into the affairs  of the Great West'Life Insurance  Company. Nothing of a sensational  nature has so far been developed.  St. Petersburg, July 26.���Civil  war .is now said to be on iu Russia.  The government, after its war to  the knife wilh the douma's proclamations, has gone steadily ahead  with its programme for repression  by foice, while the progressists have  been standing on guard.

Yorkton, Man., July 26.���Iiiiu-  dreds'of religiously demented Doukhobors paraded the streets of this  town last night in a semi-nude condition. They sang songs; yelled,  harangued, danced and raised a tremendous hub-bub until finally  rounded up by the mounted police,  who hustled them to their homes.

Ottawa, July 26.���Judge Henderson, of Vancouver, has been appointed a commissioner lo investigate all the official transactions ol"  Shipping Master McPhaiden of tlie  port oi Vancouver. The reports of  the recent cases of shansrhainsr at  Vancouver are understood to be the  reason of the enquiry.  GENliKAI.   .views.  A man named" George Shiionds  suicided al Seattle on .Saturday last  by shooting himself through lhc  head.  A treatyof peace between Guatemala and Salvador was signed  aboard the U. S. warship Marble-  head last week.  The U.S.dry dock Dewey, which  had been lowed more than half way  round the'world, arrived in safety  at Manilla last week.  The Japanese" government has  given out that it is Japan's intention  to nationalize all hei' industries, beginning with her railroads.  A Halmero despatch of the 20th  stated that Mt. Strotuboli was iu a  state of eruption and that smoke  was issuing from the creater of Mt.  Aetna.  At Washington last week President Roosevelt issued an order directing that eight hours shall constitute a day's work on all public  works, instead of ten and twelve  hours which :had been the rule heretofore.  The city of Yokohama, Japan,  suffered a heavy loss of life and pro-  perty last week from fire. At last  reports thousands of buildings had  been destroyed and the fire was still  raging. Only meagre details of the  loss of life were reported.  A late Larado, 'Hex., despatch  said: Circular's have been posted  here warning all foreigneis and especially Anitricins to quit Mexico.  The slogan is Mexico for Mexicans.  The government is expecting a gigantic labor strike and this movement against foreigners is said to be  preliminary.  At St. Petersburg last week an  attempt was made to assassinate  Count Todleben, aid-de-camp to the  czar. The Zemvovsky guards also  served notice on Col. Minn, their  commander, that they intend to assassinate him for, having ordered  them to kill their fellow soldiers  during the revolt at Moscow.  The Russian commission which  was appointed to investigate ; the  conditions and circumstances attending the surrender of Port Arthur,  have 'recommended that General  Stoessel be���sentenced to death for  cowardice, that General Palk be  sentenced to twenty years hard labor  iu the galleys, that General Reus be  expelled   from  the  army and   that  Admiral Alexin" be reprimanded.  The' commission refused to hear  Japanese officers who offered testimony on behalf of Geneial Stoessel.  A despatch of lhc 21st inst. from  Paris said:    A celebration was held "  yesterday   al, (he   tomb   of   Lmile  Zola    in    honor of  tlie acquittal of  Captain���now Colonel--Dreyfus.   It   "*'  called out a large concourse of people.    Zola was a champion of Dreyfus   and    for  his   brave stand at a   ���  time when.il   required    bravery to  speak up for the accused   man,    he  was made to suffer much.    The exoneration of Dreyfus and the turn ol" '  the tide in his favor has caused   tlie  people   to remember this and hence  the outpouring to do   him   honor iu  the name of Dreyfus.    Col. Dreyfus   .  attended   the services and when recognized was  cheered   for   several  minutes.  Mining Notes.  .  Telford   and   McDonell,   Boulder  creek, had a very satisfactory clean- '  up on Saturday last.  Gus. Anderson,   who ��� is   ground'  sluicing   ou    Boulder,   has six men,,  employed and   has   prospects   of   a  good clean-up.   -  Claude Sawyers, of Boulder, with  one man, has finished ground sluicing and has got his boxes in shape  for working bedrock.  The   McKee   Amalgamated-Co.  cleaned-up ou Monday and  secured .  gold Jo_.the_yalue, of.about $7,000.-  for a twenty days' run.  Nelson,   Shaffer   and  Rogers are  sluicing bedrock ou   their  Boulder .  ground and have prospects of extra  good values being obtained.  Molyneaux and Beattie, Boulder,  clean-up the beginning of the week  and  secured   102 ounces for a short'  run.    Their ground gives promises ���  of good returns.  J. I-I.   Black,   who  recently pur- ���  chased the discovery claim on Boul-.  der creek, has six men shovelling-in  bedrock and has prospects for a very  successful season.  Hy. Morris, who is working a  lay on the Mon-Union ground on'  Boulder, has four men at work and  has got things in shape for the operation of his hydraulic plant. He is-  on good pay and expects.satisfactory  returns.  The Societie Miniere hydraulic  plant continues to move a large  yardage of gravel on their Boulder  creek holdings and they confident^'"  expect that tire next clean-up will  amount to several thousands of  dollars.  Messrs. Dixon & Senilis*, this  week completed I .lie hauling of ovei: .  200 tons of freight to Tar -Flats for  the Atliii Consolidated Alining Co.,  who have u large staff of men engaged installing their electrical and.  steam plants at that point.  ���Uarly this week the Northern  Mines Limited cleaned-up 300 oz:  for eight days.work of their steam  shovel and eight men ou Spruce  creek. The manager, R. D. Feth-  erstonhaugh, informs us that supplies which he ordered from Vancouver in February last have only  just been shipped. Although the  shovel-men are quite new to the  work, the company's plant/is in very  good running order and Allure  clean-ups give promise of greatly  exceeding the values so Liv secured* ATLIN,   B..

McBride, Minister  of Mines, and the Hon. R. F. Green,  Chief Commissioner of Lands and  "Works, returned early this mouth  - from their annual tour of inspection  of the interior of the province,, and  it.is gratifying to be able to note  that they found conditions'iu general in a highly satisfactory condition. Particularly so was this the  case with regard to the mining iii:  dustry. The bright promise of the  commencement of the current year  is being more than fulfilled as the  months go by, and, record year for  British'" Columbia's mineral output  though 1905 was, it will have to  yield its laurals to 1906. The satisfactory statements as to the progress  of our banner industry which were  given .to the press by the Minister  of Mines on his return are "more  than borne out by the reports which  daily pour in from various camps,  both old and new���reports which  tell of the opening of new properties,  the bonding of partially developed  showings, the resumption of operations on mines which have long  lain idle, the installation of machinery and the. enlargement of plant.  The most casual glance through our  columns will convince the reader of  the progressive and healthy tone  now characteristic of provincial mining. It is now an industrial proposition���no longer a stock gambler's speculation.  It   cannot, be questioned by any  man of intelligence  that  these   annual  visits to the different districts  by ministers  of   the  crown���visits  which  have  been a regular feature  since the present provincial administration   assumed  office���are an immense factor for good in  the  development    and    government   of   the  country.    There is nothing like seeing   with   your  own eyes; and the  reports of subordinate  officials,   no  matter  how carefully or  faithfully  compiled,   can never place the condition and needs of a district before  the ruling authorities in so clear and  adequate  a  form as does a personal  visit.by these same  ruling, authorities.    -It is a most regrettable thing,  in a vast country like Canada,, that  so.few of her leading statesmen feel  it  incumbent  011 them to acquire a  personal knowledge of the enormous  territories  whose  affairs they have  been   elected   to    administer.      It  ���would   be   a very good  thing for  more than one province of Canada,  as   well as  for the Dominion as a  whole, if the example set in this respect by the present government of  British Columbia were  to   become  more fashionable.  ROYALTY ON SILVER.  Wynton town promises lo be one  of'the "best" burgs in the province  of British Columbia. Out of a  population of fourteen, July 15th,  twelve attended, morning service.  Among those present was his honor  Dr. H. E. Young, M. P. P., who  acted in' the three-fold capacity of  bugle shepherd, presenter and hatter. Having rounded the'little flock  into the dining room of the Gould  & Simpson hotel, without note or  even hymnal, he led them in singing "Nearer My God to Thee,"  after which the Atlin sky pilot  (Rev. A. M. Ross) made a bold attempt lo . fill Rev. Dr. . Pringle's  shoes. The shoes were a trifle  large, but afterwards one old tinier  (who had not been to church for  nine years) agreed that the words  of the youth were at least worth the  old man's consideration. At the  close of the service the Dr., took  the hat and with monastic authority  demanded that each man should  shell up. The response to his request amounted to seven dollars and  fifty-one cents. How the Yankee  copper got there could not be  ciphered; why the ,Dr. kept it is  still a mystery. Was it the hatter's  commission or Government royalty  on silver?���Wynton correspondent.  NOTICE.

Cheechaco���How many acres can  you cut in a day?  li. J.���Well, I remember one'et  iu one day I cut four acres of timothy hay which averaged four ton to  the acre. I could have cut twice  the quantity in the-same time only  it wasn't a very good day for cut-  rting hay and besides, when leaving  the field in the evening, I noticed  that the blade of the scythe had  been put on backwards.

C  Trial Trip of. Steamer Glengarry.  The first of tlie week Mr. W. J.  Smith,, builder, and. owner, of the  steamer Glengarry,, signed on a  large crew lor the trial trip of his  boat-, which has lately been remodeled ard re-fitted. A start: was-  made about 1.0 a.m. for Torey. inlet  and the lake was crossed in record  time against a head wind. A. stop  was made at. the mouth of the inlet  to wood-up and the usefulness of  the   numerous  crew of hand}- men  was demonstrated iu  an   advantasr-  1 ��  eous   manner.    After- a   run down  .the inlet, and lunch, a. landing was  made and the party went ashore  and enjoyed a few hours ramble on  the hillsides.. Dinner, and the re-,  turn trip in the evening were thoroughly enjoyed- by all'" aboard'and'  the home wharf was reached about  ;io p.m. The Glengarry behaved  well and proved herself-to be a-very  .comfortable, staunch and reasonably  fast craft. The crew,, who were  loath to accept thoir discharge upon  arrival in port, spoke well of their  cruise and one and all were loud in  their praise of the.good fare supplied  by and the courteous treatment, of.
